Zelenskyy mana moves MPs
Justice Minister Kiritapu Allan said she was moved by the mana of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
President Zelenskyy addressed the New Zealand Parliament this week as part of a campaign to for support for his 10-point plan to end the Russian invasion of his country.
He raised what he called Russia’s use of eco-warfare, including the poisoning of water and the planting on mines in land and sea .
Minister Allan says it was profound.
“I was stuck alongside many colleagues just by the mana, the strength he has led his peoplee through such trials and tribulations in a time of life and death, it was moving,” she says.
Aotearoa New Zealand continues to support the Ukraine with economic sanctions against Russia and its allies including Belarus and Iran.
